4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This Amber lager could be a little darker in color...... I was expecting a Red Beer..... go figure. This beer, another offering from the Rahr Brewery in Fort Worth is also worth the effort! Itís a well balanced beer with nice caramel undertones balanced by spicy hops. Again, a very dry beer - perfect for the Texas heat. A nice head stayed during the entire tasting - which didnít take very long. Again, a strong beer from Fort Worth, TX!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Obtained from Secret Santa. Malty aroma that was just ordinary. More of an orange body with decent head than settle like a bacteria sample under a microscpoe. Medium maly body for flavor and some crisp freshness on the finish where that came fro I donít know. Middle of the raod beer her but have had a lot worse.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I wanted to like this beer (Texan pejudice) I really did. But there was just nothing going on here for me. Very thin. Very watery. They must have saved a fortune on ingredients. Ho hum. Pleasant color. October swill. Drinkable but overpriced. Attractive packaging. Cool bottlecap. It just needs...................well, anything.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle via trade w/ TChrome. Pours a light copper, craggy white 1/2 inch head, lively carbonation, good lacing down to the end. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and soft floral hops. Not overwhelming but very pleasant. Cookie-like malty flavor with a lightly bitter and crisp finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation on the mouthfeel. This is a nice all around session beer. If this were available in my area it would definately be a regular fridge filler. Good example of a traditionally less than stellar "Amber Lager style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very clear true amber that leans to the redder end of the amber spectrum. The head is a nice sized, slightly sticky foam with appropriate staying power. The aroma is light. The flavor is extrememly clean a light toast and caramel malt in the middle and a small, slightly metallic bitterness lingers in the finish. Borders on bland, but definitely a techinically flawless lager.

This was a another good brew from rahr! taste is similar to samual adams lager, but not as wood-like...some head, little lacing, RUBY in color, a satisfying brew

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A fairly watery amber/red colored lager. A medium sized head forms with a slightly fruity mostly hoppy aroma. Very drinkable but unimpressive. A good Texas brew I assume since it is easy to drink in the heat of the day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a trade with Kevin. The body is dark amber with a slightly off white and persistent head. The aroma is nutty with bread and apples. The taste has bread crust with a little bit of grapefruit. The finish is nutty with a little bit of spice.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 The aroma is a nice floral hops scent, and the beer pours a perfect ruby red. But the taste... ugh! Is this beer, or hopped water? The palate is nice and smooth, but water usually is. Add some flavor and get back to me. Until then... Iíll avoid. Update: Iím drinking molten copper wire. Avoid.

Thanks to Kevin for the bottle. Pours a orange amber. Medium sized white head very fizzy, dissapates quickly. Some ambery malt aromatics with a slightly floral hop note. Mild nose, divulges some toasty flavors, hop presence mainly in a lingering residual bitterness. Mouthfeel is watery.
